    Dang, I just realized June 4th isn't that far away a little over 2 weeks. I dont have to mail. This is the time where folks start dropping like flies.

    Mrs.Alderman, you lovely ladies arrived today. Thanks for letting me pick a hostess card. I am partial to the lady in the green dress on the orange background.

    Sign me up. Here are my originals and remodeled cards. I think I improved on them. And one is a hostie CQ!

    Here's what I did -
    #1 - covered the words with some ephemera and added stitching stamping around the border.
    #2 - (Pumpkin) got rid of that ugly pumpkin, covered him with a garden gargoyle image after painting the background
    with black gesso and gold inking some swirls on. Added a strip of washi tape and some succulents to put him in a garden
    setting.
    #3 (Her What's Next) Added a different image, some ephemera and another postage stamp and some liquid pearls.
    #4 - removed star and added ephemera flower to center, washi tape on top and bottom, added the word "beautiful" and
    inked edges with gold.

    I'm very sorry, I will have to withdraw. We moved at the end of last month and after that I've been in a flu & just without energy to unpack my craft supplies yet. I hoped to do it and start cardmaking last weekend but I just wasn't up to it. Too bad! I was really excited about this theme. Maybe I will remake my chosen cards at a later point.
    Welcome to take a look at my blog, Instagram account and APC wishlist!

    First picture is the ‘before’. Thoughts? Am I on the right track or have I gone too far?
    Bunnymther, you made two, Did you ever make one more? We need you.

    Mine are going postal today. I edited my original thread post to explain the remodeling I did on the cards. This was fun and a good exercise in re-working our cards to make them even better.

    This is such a great idea for a swap. I'm sorry I didn't get my act together enough to play. Maybe if you do it again I can jump in.

    You could probably do this trap every year.... it’s a good idea to relook at old unwanted cards... “what was I going for?” Becomes “what could I go for?”

    A yearly swap like this is a good idea. I will keep that in mind.

    I am going to move this swap from Open to Active, swaps. Any lurkers can still join .
